You can't be a quilter and not do some quilting. Still, the truth is, I've always been more comfortable designing piecing than quilting. But quilting won't become easier unless I do more of it. So it's time I spent some time trying to design stand-alone quilting.
What if I start with a simple stitched shape like this?
What if I place 4 stems around a circle?
This pattern has some potential.
What if I repeat this pattern 4 times to form a diamond shape?
This nice, simple, and plain.
What if I repeat the diamond shape by stitching a second one on top of the first but slightly offset?
This is definitely ornate. But, since it is made by repeating a simple pattern it should be simple to sew even though it looks complicated.
What if one of the diamond shapes is a different color?
The light grey looks as if it is the shadow cast by the black diamond shape.
I like all 3 versions of this pattern.
